Which genre will be most popular for Gen 8?

FPSs
RPGs
Platformers
Action/Adventure
Puzzle
Other

Last Gen was clearly dominated by the FPS genre. Most console gens have one genre that sticks out and stays consistently popular throughout, but it doesnt always carry over to the gen after it.

Will Gen 8 be dominated by the FPS genre like Gen 7 before it? Or will another genre take its place, and if so, which?

I think open world or ''semi'' open world will dominate. TPS basically.



I think FPS will be the biggest again, but not dominate quite so much.

I'm going to guess Action Adventure. Games like Tomb Raider and Assassins creed where they have open worlds, but they aren't quite RPGS. Heck I even expect Uncharted 4 to have an open world.

Social games.

I don't remember what I was going to put here.

This. Open world third person games ala GTA V, Infamous: Second Son, Sunset Overhyped, Watch_Dogs, Assasin's Creed IV, blah blah, blegh.



"Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence." - C.S. Lewis

"Anyone who tries to use the word "fanboy" as a legitimate descriptive term in any intelligent conversation needs to go back to grade school. Immature no-brain bullshit like that is why normal people look at video game players and only see acne-ridden dweebs with severe social issues." - Myself

Can we have a gen with a big variety, and no dominant games?

FPS will continue to be the "Blockbuster" franchise in our industry.

Call of Duty will continue to sell 20 Million a Year. Battlefield will continue to push gigantic numbers. Halo will still be a 10 Million seller. Destiny is going to be huge.

Just expect it to shift from a linear genre to a more open world genre.
